Damaged file, damaged sound.

Subject: From the Victor Discography
This recording is indeed the Hadyn Quartet with Harry McDonough the lead tenor. It was recorded on September 9, 1908, the year that Harry Von Tilzer wrote this great American standard.
Jack Norworth and Nora Bayes may have sung this together as well but it does not show up in any Victor Discography. Possibly Columbia, although I have read they sang it live for their stage performances.
Thanks for putting this in the archive.

Lead tenor is Harry MacDonough, group is "Haydn", this file is processed to death.

It is possibly singer Jack Norworth.

Subject: It is not Billy Murray
He never recorded this song although he was a baseball fanatic. Maybe he was out playing baseball himself.
The tenor doesn't even sound like him. Billy Murray has a very distinctive sound.
Here's two sources that go into detail about the error: Billy Murray: the Phonograph Industry's First Great Recording Artist, by Frank Hoffmann–Scarecrow Press, 1997, and http://www.archeophone.com/features/spotlights/ball_game/index.php
